Album Review ~ This Side of the Sky by Je’kob

Album Cover Genre Christian/Hip-hop/R&B/Acoustic My Rating **** (4 Stars) My Review Truly and natively hip-hop, Je’kob doesn’t hold back in this album. He’s a refreshing voice with a strong presence. The songs are catchy and entertaining, and equally true to their message of Christianity. One song in particular—I Believe—caught my attention. It had a flavor of urban reggae with an acoustic backdrop, as did other songs, while still maintaining the hip-hop/R&B feel to it. I thought it was lovely! There was a moment in the album where the electric guitar took over. It was pretty awesome! There’s no particular theme in this album—except that every song is true to the Word of God in whatever message a song preaches. A unique and refreshing voice in the world of Christian hip-hop/R&B. The lyrics were edifying and well-written, too. Read this post on facebook. About Je’kob Rapper, singer, and record producer, Je’kob Washington was born in San Antonio, Texas, on June 16th, 1981.

It’s like a woman who has found her place, and is ready to tell the world her story. It is both personal, refreshing, and entertaining. This album also talks about family, a message on the right use of our tongues, Christians getting cold, achieving dreams, addressing immorality, and a song dedicated to gratefulness for God’s grace. The songs are generally native/urban R&B, on the soft side. I, personally, am a fan of rock, and there was this moment when I heard an electric guitar play as a backdrop to the song “Dreams”, giving it a nice and unique flavor. I thought that was lovely! Of all the songs/lyrics, this line stood out to me the most, and I’m taking …
